Ten beautiful objects

View Photo Gallery : Think you’ve seen it all? Think again. Here are eye-opening objects to ponder, culled from the D.C. area’s art scene. Vote for your favorites, and recommend others we might have missed.
Art can make you think, art can make you happy, and art can make you angry. (That’s not always a bad thing, that last one.) Less often, it will knock your socks off.

You know it when you see it: the artwork you can’t walk past without doing a double take, the one that draws a crowd, the thing your friends post pictures of on Facebook. But it’s not always easy to find.

Here to help is a guide to 10 singular art objects, installations and exhibitions you won’t soon forget — and you should soon see. Some of them won’t be around for long.

Cast your vote for your favorite here, or let us know which amazing artwork we might have overlooked, by leaving a comment.
